During my 19 years as a veterinarian, I have felt many times the desire to protect the animal from its owner, some owners change the pursuit of the animal and make it behave like a human. I feel that it makes our pets lose their essence and they can get confused. Am I the only one thinking this way?

Like you many people think this is a serious issue. I also think the pets will get confused specially when they see other pets may not be treated equally or even have the same actions as they do to certain moments.

Not at all, I also think the same way. Animals tend to modify their behavior because of what surrounds them and many humans contribute too much for this to happen.

No, you are not the only one thinking this way. I have also felt this way many times. I think it is important for owners to remember that their pets are animals and should be treated as such. This means providing them with proper food, water, shelter, and exercise. It also means not expecting them to behave like humans. Pets are wonderful additions to our lives, but we need to remember that they are not human and should not be treated as such.

I can understand why you would feel that way. Pets are not meant to be treated like humans, and when they are, it can be confusing for them. They lose their essence and can't behave the way they are supposed to.

I can certainly understand where you're coming from. Pets are animals and should be allowed to behave as such, within certain reasonable boundaries set by their owners, of course. When pets are treated like humans, they can become confused and lose their natural essence. This isn't good for the pet or the owner.
